reduce, reuse, recycle

A friend sent me this a short while back and I think it is a fabulous use of  ‘trash’.   The text is in Spanish but I don’t think you need the text to understand.

Cómo sellar una bolsa y que sea hermética!

How to seal a plastic bag 

Cortar una botella de agua desechable (o similar) y mantener el cuello y parte superior, como en las fotos a continuación.

Inserte la bolsa de plástico a través de la boca y rosca
de la parte superior – para sellar.
La botella está hecha para ser hermética, de manera que
el agua no se escapará, el secreto está en la parte
superior y el tornillo!
Esta es una Gran Idea para compartir. 
Bueno para nosotros y el medio ambiente también.

    GREAT TIP! Thanx for sharing.

    Every perishable item in my house is in some sort of a sealed container. I've taken to saving plastic jars, such as those from mayonaise and peanut butter, with screw top lids because they make the best storage containers. With the hell-hot heat of summer just around the corner, I'm working on reducing the items I have on hand that are perishable. The heat seems to just about ruin most everything, not to mention the ants that miraculously find their way into your home and your kitchen.

    Could you post a link to this site if you have it. For some reason I can't see the pictures and am having a tough time figuring out exactly what they mean.
